This winter sees two exciting productions which would be beneficial for any child to experience, not to mention great fun for the whole family.
A production for the younger members of the family aged 3-5. (There is a special version adapted for toddlers aged 1-2 years which you can request.)
“Out tumbles the biggest, strangest duckling you’ve ever seen. Honk! Hiss! Argh! Follow the ugly duckling through all the sights and sounds of the duckyard, as he waddles, swims and flaps his way into the big, wide world. Lost and lonely, will he ever find where he belongs?
This brand new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale is by the director and designer of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and the composer of Skitterbang Island. The Ugly Duckling promises to be a playful and tender production, brought to life with delightful music, movement and puppetry”
